Land information and mapping of forest land is a key element in the provision of forest yield information and accurately planning and forecasting operations.
Most forest valuations and yield projections rely on Net Stocked Area (NSA), inaccurate stocked area statements will impact on the value of any resource inventory completed.
When planning an inventory, sample design can be optimised in advance using good map data.
- Maps and area play a vital role in planning, tracking, recording and reporting all operations performed in a forest or on a patch of land.
- Gain an accurate measure of area that is actually in productive stocked area.
- Maps also play an important role in harvest planning and engineering,
- Combined with reduced field validation and survey good mapping can save forest owners a significant amount of money over a forest rotation.
- Forest mapping – forest and stand mapping, auditing of existing maps, boundary validation, field inventory, ETS shape files, insurance claims and harvest planning and engineering.
